Spicy Carrot Hummus Party Dip

 Looking for a stunning appetizer to serve at a party? Spicy carrot hummus has a pretty color with a delicious taste. Plus it is loaded with plenty of nutrition. Perfect for a vegetable tray or a charcuterie board. This Spicy Carrot Hummus is filled with tangy sweetness and topped with sunflower seeds and apricots — with just the right amount of heat.

  I love hummus as it is such a healthy spread that tastes great with veggies and crackers. I tend to eat it by the spoonful. I discovered spicy carrot hummus when I attended a conference and it was love at first bite. I just knew that I had to buy some.

 I was so happy that my local health food store carried this delicious hummus and it quickly became my favorite healthy splurge/snack that I treated myself to every week. The only problem was the cost. I hated spending 6.00 on a small container of hummus that I usually ate in one day. So I decided to see if I could make this tasty hummus myself.

 I looked at the ingredients on the container of the store-bought carrot hummus and was up for the challenge of recreating this delicious hummus made with carrots. So I bought the hummus ingredients to make the spicy carrot hummus. Once I started making the hummus, I decided to make a couple of ingredient changes. I did not have sriracha sauce so I substituted crushed red pepper for sriracha sauce.

My recipe for homemade spicy carrot hummus was successful and delicious. I loved that it made a large serving, more than twice the size of the store-bought hummus. Now I can eat more of this yummy hummus, more often. So grab the carrots and make this delicious healthy hummus!

Can you make this with other vegetables as well? I don't like carrot, it's the only vegetable I don't eat.
